Zuhur Balayah is a PhD candidate within the Faculty of Management (in the area of Organisational Behaviour) at Bayes Business School. Her PhD sits within the Centre for Healthcare Innovation Research (a joint venture between Bayes Business School and the School of Health Sciences).
Utilising online ethnographical methods, her current research focuses on organisational learning, change management and knowledge sharing between and within inter-organisational virtual Communities of Practice engaged in implementing and spreading primary healthcare open-source innovation. Focusing on how these inter-organisational communities share experiential knowledge and generated learning about the same or similar innovation that is being implemented across healthcare system levels.
Zuhur's PhD research output could reveal insights with important implications for the processes of implementation and spread activities and strategic and operational management of innovations in healthcare organisations. That might help with understanding how to tackle issues related to nonspread of innovations in healthcare systems that are characterised by triple-helix organisational form. Potentially shedding light on processes related to the social aspects of innovation and knowledge sharing facilitated by social networks in healthcare settings.
Prior to beginning her PhD, Zuhur held various research roles including at the Centre for Implementation Science at King’s College London. She holds a BSc in Pharmacology from UCL and an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
PhD supervisors: Prof. Amit Nigam and Dr. Charitini Stavropoulou.
